Paradip (Orissa), May 15 (PTI) CPI leader and MP Bibhu Prasad Tarai was arrested today while trying to enter the proposed steel plant site of Posco-India ahead of a rally to protest the project, police said.

“Tarai was arrested as a preventive measure to avoid any law and order problem as a large number of anti-Posco activists have gathered in the area,” SP Jagatsinghpur Devdutta Singh said.

Prohibitory orders under section 144 of the CrPC has been imposed around Balitutha, the entry point to the proposed plant site where anti-Posco activists have been staging a dharna, he said.

Police personnel have been deployed in the area to prevent any untoward incident, Singh said.

About 1,500 police have been mobilised as part of Orissa government’s efforts to begin forest survey and land acquisition in the plant site, police said.–CPI-MP-held-in-Orissa-district
